Panorama Museum on the Siege of Sevastopol commemorates one of Imperial Russia's greatest and most celebrated military victories, in which Russian defenders beat back French and British armies more than double their number. See a vibrant display of Russian military history by visiting the museum specially built to house the enormous painting, measuring 14 m (50 ft) tall and 115 m (377 ft) long. Look closely to spot the many details included in the panorama of the siege, which lasted from 1854 to 1855. The painting features hundreds of individual soldiers, realistically painted cannons and military equipment, and the topography of the harbor itself. Learn more about the battle and the painting via a guided tour of the panorama, offered in English.
